The Compact is a vehicle from Burnout 2: Point of Impact. When racing as the Compact, it's a simple vehicle with sub-par speed and acceleration for the earlier races, but it makes up for that fact with above average handling, making it a good choice for beginners.
When racing against the Compact, it poses little to no threat. Due to the slower speed at which the CPU players race at when compared to the player, CPU-controlled Compacts have a lot of trouble keeping up with the rest of the CPU and the player, and are usually left at the back of the pack, only kept behind thanks to rubberband AI, which still doesn't help it a whole lot. The good handling for a car of it's level also does not help the CPU evade crashes any easier.
On occasions, it may overtake some of the slower cars in it's class, such as the SUV and the Pickup, but cars such as the Roadster, Sport and Muscle have superior speed and acceleration, so it will struggle to just keep up with them, never mind overtake them.
As a CPU in Championship Mode, it only appears in one event; the Pacific Gate Grand Prix.
